It’s been a few days since my last post. Let me explain - no, is too much. Let me sum up.
On Friday, after school I did my PT exercises. Going to have to increase some weights and resistances and reps, b/c they are getting easier to do. They take aa long time to do, though! Did I mention before that my second yoga class was last Thursday? I was apparently the only person who practiced the poses! Yay me! Definitely feeling more flexible. Balance is still a challenge for some of the poses.
On Saturdy the LA Roadrunners were scheduled to do 20 milles. My walk pace group waas goingto do 22. Either was a little too much of an increase for me, so I did 16 and had Jen pick me up. The walk wentt really well. We kept a good pace of almost 13:30 minutes per mile, and at mile 14 I had a urgee to start running! I resisted, though. As the walk went on I kept pulling away from the others, but I wwould wait at stoplights occasionally for everyone to regroup. BAD blisters on both of my index toes. Going to have to figure out what I can do about that. I did use some anti-blister stuff, but clearly it doesn’t last long enough. Band-aids don’t work.
Today I went back to the Santa Monica College Pool. It was crowded, but I got good workout in. I did a short speed workout: 5 minutes warmup, 1 minute hard with 1 minute easy ten times, then 5 minute cool down. Haven’t beeen able to do a workout like thaat in a long timee, and it felt great!
